In the face of a constantly changing business landscape, IMD has designed an innovative selection of executive programs to meet business leaders’ growing demand for certification.

The revamped portfolio of executive qualifications features a 360° program for executive development, a set of online certificates, and programs with an in-depth focus on two crucial aspects of modern business: digital transformation and sustainability.
